About this document
This professionally drawn agreement provides for one or more companies or individuals to act as a guarantor for the obligations of one or more other companies, regardless of the relationship between them.
The guarantor could be a related company (such as a parent or a subsidiary), unrelated (but perhaps having a shareholder in common), or an individual.
The document provides additional, strong legal protection for the lender or party on the other side.
The most common use for a cross guarantee agreement is to provide additional security for a loan. While this agreement is suitable for that purpose, it is also suitable for ensuring the performance of any other contract. For example, it could be used to make sure that an important building project, on which a larger project depends, is completed on time and to specification.
The agreement can be used where one or more of the parties is outside of the UK.
This agreement can be signed as a deed, or as an agreement under hand. Our guidance notes explain how to do both.
Depending on the circumstances, a cross guarantee could be put in place at the same time as the related contract is signed, or as a supplementary agreement at some point after if circumstances change (such as the ownership of either side changes).
We also include optional provisions to vary the terms of the original contract if the circumstances require.
This is a solicitor drawn document that gives strong legal protection.
The law in this document
There is no relevant statute law with respect to the provision of guarantees. This document is based on common law.
In these examples, the guarantee is for performance of a contract. If you are looking for a cross guarantee agreement for a contract debt only, you should look at our inter-group guarantee for a loan, specifically for that purpose.
Net Lawman also offers other guarantee and indemnity documents that might be of interest.
